    I have 1gb set as min and max, windows doesn't slow down when expanding the pagefile then you see? :) its set on the begining section of my raptor and windows in the next bit and I run my games and apps from the rest of it and other drives

    I always set it to twice the size of the memory and I set the min and max memory to the same amount so windows does'nt controll and vary the size all the time.

    the rule i 'believe' is 1.5x your ram.. but if you have 1.5GB of ram.. then you can set no paging file
    but screw the rules.. i don't like paging files..heh

    Pagefile

    When I installed my 160GB HDD in 2003, I made a 2GB partition for the pagefile. At first, that 2GB was used with 0.5 GB RAM, but currently, its 1 GB. I know it may still be overkill, but as it does not hurt performance, I just took a little more, to be sure that the partition could last as long as the HDD.

    1GB ram (as shown inmy system profile) and 768MB for page file. never had a problem. pagefile is on my C:\ drive along with my windows Install (10GB partition) while the 110GBs left of my 120GB drive are for any installed programs or downloaded files. my other 80GB drive is just for backup files and music.

    Whatever size you choose, keep the min/max values the same, or the pagefile will fragment.

    1.5 gigs, in 64bit its in 7 fragments so it lags whenever its used alot, in 32bit its been defragged so its faster. Its only really used in BF2.

    1534 MB Min./Max. for 1 GB of ram. I'ts highly suggested that you not run XP without a pagefile. No pagefile can cause serious system problems.-----suddenly and without warning. It would be like dropping a brick on your foot---it felt fine til the brick landed.

    i am a heavy memory user (modeling lots of huge 3D scenes) so i use 1.5Gb with 1.5Gb pagefile. When i had 1Gb RAM i had 2Gb pagefile. If you are using lots of memory on a daily basis it's generaly best idea to use 3.0-3.5Gb maximum virtual memory size since the maximum adress space for 32 bit CPUs is 4Gb, and you need at least 256-512Mb for the AGP apperture and BIOS shadows.
